erm.... what? I think you need to get your eyes checked my man. He catches the ball, goes to ground, rolls over twice and then flips the ball out of his hands intentionally as he... ya know.... caught the ball and went to ground and rolled over a few times, more than "completing the catch process and making a football move".

Nevermind the fact that it is totally irrelevant if he does drop it going to ground as he caught the pass in the open field and then crosses the line with posession of the ball....

 

 

Yeah, he's dead wrong. He caught the ball, took 4 steps, went down in the end zone, and the play was over. Then he let the ball go on purpose.

 

Also a great example of tracking the ball over his shoulder to make the catch.

 

Campbell having catch issues is not a thing that exists in the real world.

Chappell on JMV says he believes campbells drop was a PBU and tipped. He actually thinks the receivers are going to be fine.

He has been injured every year as well in the season...just saying, we have a very small sample size with him.  I hope he does well as he can become a huge asset...

He hasn’t been injured in camp. It’s games where he got injured.

????  That is akin to the argument that he was healthy throughout College, not trying to argue, as I previously stated I hope he does well.

I wish I could bottle up your enthusiasm and use it every day. Nothing wrong with having hope for this season. Go Colts!

Oh it's not a matter of enthusiasm, I just go by the eye test. We will be there. After we get the Final 4 dealing with those other monsters is a different story but we will deal with it :thmup:

All right, my man (a little condescending). He did not "flip the ball out" as if it were an overt action. It comes out because he was fighting for possession while rolling in the ez.

 

As to crossing the ez, that is true if he had possession as he crossed the ez. During the broadcast, there was a view from the ez that showed the catch face on and he was juggling it all the way to the ground (I can't find it. I know convenient).

 

Now, I admit I may be wrong and I probably stated too matter of factly that it was incomplete, regardless, it was closer then most recall. 

 

Also, to be clear he was bobbling it before he broke his foot. I'll cut him some slack at that point.

I've been wrong once before and this might make twice. I do disagree that he purposely tossed the ball though, that squirted out.

 

Yes, he tracked that fine.

 

As I said, I hope he proves me wrong.

You were also so sure we were going to beat the. Jags too.

I really wasn't deep down to be honest, Wentz had me scared but I was trying to pump up the forum because so many in here were down. We got this in 2022 though. Matt Ryan is just simply better than Wentz. I just want to see how Maniac is doing each day now. I want to see if we bring back TY as well..

Right on. To your point, I just looked at the broadcast to find the end zone view you were talking about, and he didn't purposely let the ball go. However, it came out after four steps, two full rolls in the end zone, and a broken foot. I don't think it speaks to a hands issue.

 

Anything we get from Parris this season is a bonus. I've always liked him, still like his profile, and it's not his fault that he's had these freak injuries as a pro, so I'm not aggressively pessimistic on him. But it would be a mistake to count on him to be a big time producer, because three years in a row he's been unable to do that. So yeah, I hope he proves everyone wrong, but I'm not betting on it.

 

Still don't agree with any real criticism of his hands or ability to catch, but then again, we've barely seen him in the NFL, so we don't know what he can/can't do. Fingers crossed we find out soon.

You also gave a good old @2006Coltsbestever guarantee we would beat the Raiders if I remember correctly?

 

Nothing wrong with optimism. Not at all! But I’d say you are beyond optimistic. 
 

If you can’t see any reason why we can’t be in the final 4, you haven’t been following the Colts. Not saying it can’t happen, but we’re an outsider looking to upset, we’re not a guarantee.

Totally not meant to be condescending, sorry if it came across that way.

But im afraid I have to disagree with you, I've got NFL gamepass and I am watching the game right now on it. No angle is showing him without possesion of the ball all the way through the catch.

To be fair to you, there is a bit of a bobble as he is crossing the line, but he 100% has posession of the ball through the entire catch and never loses it until he stands up from his roll and flips it out of his hand.

To be fair. No team is a lock for the final 4

I have been wrong many times I will admit it, I also guaranteed we would beat the Pats and got into it with a Pats fan in here - I was right there.

 

I didn't think Wentz would collapse like he did, he made me look bad. I always thought Wentz was above average so we could win the easy one's with him, it bit me. When we signed Rivers I said we would go 11-5 and make the playoffs so I nailed that one and was never worried with Rivers so give me some love there - many was calling him noodle arm. Sometimes I nail it, sometimes I don't. I love our 2022 on paper especially if Maniac is healthy. Matt Ryan is just a different breed, if I am wrong here I will be shocked because he is a Hall of Famer and a Top 25 QB ever.

I concede. I admit I may be a little more stringent on what is and is not a catch than the NFL haha.

    • It's very telling that nobody actually came out and said that Stroud's published test score was inaccurate. Yes there was pushback about the scores, but they all were very general and non-specific. "I've seen published scores that aren't correct", "Those scores miss a lot of context", etc.    And especially when Stroud himself was asked about those scores. Do you remember what his answer was? He didn't dispute any of it. He just said he's not a test-taker, he's a football player.    I think several big time reporters/analysts reported it. I think I first heard it from Zierlein. But can't find the original. Here's Pelissero reporting on it too: https://www.nfl.com/news/2023-nfl-draft-pro-execs-scouts-coaches-rank-and-evaluate-the-qb-class           There have been some suggestions that the Panthers took Bryce Young over Stroud partially because of the S2 test, because they valued it highly.    Yeah, I don't remember if it was reported as players refusing it or their agents not allowing them to take it, but this is what one of the podcasts I listen to reported. Not 100% sure which one it is because I consume a lot of those draft podcasts.    They probably can... not sure if the players would do it. But if the teams knew it in advance they might have better idea of whether development in certain areas is even possible. 
    • I don't think I agree that it's revisionist. Last year, some scores leaked, and then Stroud's scores got aggregated and the story was sensationalized. But all along, there was pushback about the scores -- were they accurate, was there missing context, was there an incomplete leak designed to make people discount Stroud, was someone trying to gain leverage for a trade, etc. There was skepticism from reputable people, and even though it was noted that many teams value the S2 test, I don't think anyone ever expected or predicted that Stroud's draft stock was significantly affected by whatever his score was.    I don't remember reading that he took the test multiple times. That's an interesting variable, if it's true.   There can be value in the test, but like with any other piece of information, how do you apply what's learned to your evaluation process? Like you said, there's a lot of work to figure out how this testing correlates to a player's ability to perform in the NFL, same as with any other datapoint. I don't know if it should be dismissed, but I don't think any team is letting S2 scores rule over their scouting process. Not even for QBs.    I haven't heard that any QBs are refusing to take the test, but I have read that agents are recommending that they don't. I think that's alarmist; Stroud went #2, which is basically what most people expected. Is it established that the scores hurt him? I'd say they did not. But I might not want a player I represent to be subjected to the media/Internet scrutiny, especially since it's clear that players pay attention to what's being said about them, and sometimes react to it.   To the bolded, if a team wants to use S2 results for planning, why can't they draft their QB, and then ask him to take the test? Now there's no pressure, he can test under controlled circumstances, and the team can use the data to help develop their player. 
    • The most important stat is late 20's in defense. Then the eternal test. We can get a sack that puts them in long situations and they quickly pick apart our poor coverage. 
    • To me all this sounds like revisionist history. There were TONS of reports at the time about how much teams valued the S2 test, how some execs were worried about his S2 scores... how he took it MULTIPLE TIMES in attempt to get better score(very far from the assumption that he didn't give full effort).    It's OK if a test doesn't 100% predict performance. It's on those GMs and execs that they put so much weight on it. At the end of the day Stroud is just another datapoint in the dataset of 1000s players that took that test. And the discrepancy between his score and his performance might help further improve the correlation matrix. Maybe the certainty last year wasn't warranted and from now on teams and execs will read more carefully into what that test is saying and what it isn't saying and how much they should value it.    My guess is... the pendulum might swing the other way too much(into completely devaluing the test).    BTW I heard on a podcast that this year's QBs have been refusing to take the test precisely because of how Stroud was treated last year and teams are now * off because that test is not only used for evaluation purposes, but also for planning of future development. 
    • From Albert Breer/SI: https://www.si.com/nfl/2024/02/26/draft-preview-combine-cheat-sheet-questions     A lot of good info in there, but I really noticed that people are stressing how deep they think the draft is at positions that everyone wants the Colts to target. And it makes me think that there will be value on Day 2, at WR and CB especially, and OL. The positions that are probably at more of a premium in the first round will be DT/DE. DT especially lines up with a major roster need for the Colts, and aligns with Ballard's philosophy of building the trenches.   One more snippet:
